These were easy to make and tasted lovely. They did take a lot longer to cook than the stated time though. My took about 25 minutes but keep on checking them.

Thanks for your question. Yes, you can warm them through in the oven.

Can these be frozen, and if so, at what stage?

Hi there,There is a blue star above the nutrition information which we place there whenever a recipe can be frozen. Unless otherwise stated this means the dish can be frozen once completed. In this case, you could also lay the palmiers out on a tray (this stops them sticking together) and freeze them, then gather them into a freezer bag. Lay them out again and cook from frozen. You will need to increase the cooking time so that they are golden brown when they come out of the oven.Thanks!
